The ductwork around the house is something most homeowners never think about. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Unfortunately, if you neglect your ductwork and fail to have it cleaned regularly by a professional, dust, allergens and other debris will circulate around your house. This can trigger anything from mild allergic reactions to severe respiratory problems. But how do you know when it’s time to schedule that call?

Duct Cleaning Before and After:




When Should You Have Your Ducts Cleaned?


As a general rule, you should have your ducts cleaned by a professional every three to five years. However, keep in mind that this is the bare minimum. If you live in an older home, have pets at home, are prone to allergies or live with someone with a respiratory illness, you’ll need more frequent cleanings.


The Benefits of Regular Air Duct Cleaning


There are a number of key benefits to having your ducts regularly cleaned by a professional. Of course, the biggest one is having cleaner air to breathe. Hiring an HVAC services provider to clean your ducts will also reduce the amount of dust in your home so you don’t have to worry about dusting and vacuuming as often. This will also help get rid of unpleasant odors, including the smell of pets, mold, tobacco and even fumes from a recent paint job.
